Twelve Month Tarot Spread

Twelve Month Tarot Spread

The Twelve Month Spread is a good set of cards to use if you are going to want to know how the next year is going to treat you in life.  This is a good choice of spread if you are at the end of the year or the end of the year is coming up.  Each card will represent a different month for the upcoming year.

Sometimes, in life, we look back at a certain month and point out if it was good or bad.  With the Twelve Month Spread, you will be able to think about the year that is coming up and the things that will be good and bad in your life.

You always want to start this spread with a clear and open mind.  First, take away any distractions around you that will cause you not to be able to concentrate.  Then, shuffle the deck and place the cards face down in a pattern like a grid.

Lift each card up, one by one, and think about what each card tells you.  Look at the meaning of each card, and then make sure that you turn over each card in the right order.

Don’t be distracted if you get a strong card, plan on focusing on that later.  In each card or each month, things will happen in your life that is going to be important.  You might want to write down what happens each month. So you can refer back to the cards to check for accuracy and guidance.

Pay attention to what order the cards are in and think about what kind of events can happen that will live up to what each card is telling you.  Maybe you are changing jobs or getting a promotion.  Maybe there is a chance that you are moving.  Figure out how each card fits into your life.

When you have put the cards down in grid order, do not change them and figure out what each card means to you.  If you want to, journal these so you can keep up with them as the year goes by to see what each card truly means.

Tarot Cards

Take time to learn all of the cards and suits in the tarot deck, including:

  • Suit of Swords
  • Suit of Pentacles
  • Suit of Cups
  • Suit of Wands
  • Major Arcana

Write a short paragraph about the spread you have in front of you and keep it in a personal journal.  This will help you remember the cards and help you have a longer time to interpret what they mean for your past, present, and future.

Use your journaling to help yourself grow and to challenge yourself.  Write down all of the things that you have faced in your life, and let the cards guide you and help you.

Suit of Swords

The Suit of Swords is one that helps to tell thoughts and personal things.  The Swords are there to look deep into the mind, and the element of the Swords is the element of air.  These cards can remind you of what you have done and the fears and challenges that were seen in order to reach your goals.

These are cards that are mainly represented in the Swords suit.  These cards can be associated with conflict, and not all people are able to reach their goals or what they are working towards.  The Swords also represent personal intellect and how you are able to logically see things instead of how the emotions control you.

Suit of Pentacles

The suit of Pentacles is a symbolic card that has different symbolic meanings.  This can be satanic worship or Wiccan beliefs and is seen in different religions.

Pentacles represent wealth and the Earth element.  This deals with wealth, being materialistic, having possessions, and income.  The Pentacles represent more than wealth, but they represent being grounded and taking care of your life.  You can take care of issues that can be fixed and have goals, obstacles, and desires.

Suit of Cups

The cups represent the vessel and the element of water.  Different cups show you different things, as the Suit of Cups is one that usually deals with females and emotional situations that come in life.

Some symbols are used with these cards, and the vessel is usually something that will hold liquid, which is considered a female (cup).  The Suit of Cups represents someone who will think with logic and someone who is strong in their spirituality.

If you see the cups a lot when a reading is happening, it probably means that you are someone that is very emotional and that you are personal to what the reading is telling you.

There are times when your emotions will be good and times when they will be bad, so if there is a reading that you get and it has a lot of cups in, chances are it can be either a good reading or a bad reading.

Suit of Wands

The Wands cards are also known as the rods, and they are part of some of the Tarot decks that you can buy.  This is part of the magic part of the tarot reading.  A Magician will have a wand, and so do witches and wizards.  They use the wands to cast spells.

The wands will show when there is energy in a reading and when things need to be accomplished.  The wand will show you that you can affect other people if you are around them.  Your desires affect others.

Major Arcana

The first set of cards in the tarot set is the Major Arcana, and it is different than the Minor Arcana.  The Major Arcana is divided into allegorical symbols called the Journey of the Fool instead of suits, like a regular playing deck of cards would be.  So using tarot cards will be a journey that is symbolic, and it can help you interpret all of the things going on in your life.

The Major Arcana will show you a scene that focuses on people, and it will have different descriptions and symbolic meanings.

If you want to understand the cards better, you can ask your psychic to give you a Tarot reading.  This can allow you to learn to understand the meaning of each of the cards.  If you want to have a highly recommended expert do your reading, contact someone at for all of your tarot card reading needs.
